Okay, so I went and saw the last movie in the Twilight Saga tonight. I liked it.
What I didn't like, was the amount of little kids in the place. I don't believe in censorship, but I believe in parenting.
Maybe it was because of the way we - my sister and myself and our cousins- were raised. If movies did not have a G rating, and we were under 10 we didn't see it.
If a show came on after 8pm and we were under 9 we didn't see it.
If a record had a sticker on it and we were under 13 we didn't get to listen to it.
But, I understand that the world has changed in the last 30 years since I was 8 years old. Everyone is exposed to everything because of the internet and video games etc.
That doesn't mean that it's good for the kids.
I've been open about the fact I'm not thrilled with children to begin with, but I think if you're going to go to a vampire movie, you should keep your kids at home with a babysitter. (okay there are one or two childrens' movies about vampires but Breaking Dawn 1 and 2 are not it)
I'm sorry, did I forget to say this was a rant...
Here's a spoiler- there is a scene where a child is ripped apart and tossed into a fire.- End of Spoiler
And there was a couple sitting in front of me with three kids all around the age of 5. During the very violent scene, the kid started to freak out and tried to climb out of their seat screaming they wanted to go home. And the parents did nothing, said nothing, just laughed. They did not take the kid home, they did not tell the kid it was just a movie.
I have no idea why they even brought them there? Dude, it was a vampire movie. With vampires killing people and sex scenes. Not appropriate for little kids.
Here's a thought, if your kid is still in dippers or still drinks from a bottle, a vampire movie is not the thing they should be sitting in front of.
